WordPress Security

Every day, some scary article or Facebook post about a major site being hacked or a sensitive database being compromised hits the web and everyone is code red. Did you know that Google blacklists over 6,000 malware-infected websites a day? Consider the ramifications of your website being blacklisted tomorrow. Might hinder your traffic a bit, no? Securing your WordPress site is one of the most critical aspects of starting your online presence and growing it to the next level. As your site becomes more popular and garners the attention of new consumers, it also becomes a more attractive target for hackers and people who are up to no good. While there is no silver bullet when it comes to securing a site, there are several things that can be done to make it less likely that your site will be compromised. When I first launched Keekee360design.com some 6 years ago, I couldn’t have told you the difference between DDOS and Mike Doss. I was among the ranks of those who used the same password for all my accounts … and my bank account … and, you get the idea. Over time, I have learned the importance of taking security seriously.… Read More»

Designing a logo for your business can often be a challenging task – involving time, resources and internal debate. A good logo sets the stage for your company’s visual brand for years to come. Your logo is the foundation of your brand. Your logo’s design not only influences how your customers (and the rest of the world) perceive your brand—it also dictates the colors, fonts, and graphics that will be used in your marketing materials. From email signatures all the way up to your website, your logo design holds power. So what is a Logo? Your logo is a symbol, sign, wordmark or emblem. Logos tend to be graphical in nature, designed for easy recognition of an organization across different mediums. What is Brand? A brand is the idea or image of a specific product or service that consumers connect with, by identifying the name, logo, slogan, or design of the company. Branding is when that idea or image is marketed so that it is recognizable by more and more people, and identified with a certain service or product when there are many other companies offering the same service or product. Simply, your brand is the emotional and psychological relationship… Read More»

How to get away with Branding

logo design, web design , website deisgn, social media management, website maintence, website hack repair, SEO, grapgic design , huntsville, al , ga, tn. miss, huntsville

Branding is the process of aligning the opinions people hold about your brand with the set of thoughts you want them to believe and trust. Apple has done an excellent job of branding its’ company and changing the rules along the way. Apple blew up the rules of branding because Steve Jobs simply didn’t follow the traditional rules, and he never did what he was supposed to do. He knew that someone else’s success wouldn’t be his own, because it’s a fact that imitating others has never resulted in great successes. It’s just great flattery. The rules that criminal-law professor Annalise Keating tells her students to follow if they want to win a case on the hit TV show, How to get away with murder is: Discredit the witness. Find a new suspect. Bury the evidence. Through the television series there are several lessons learned by the student. In this article, we will take the same approach; so pay attention. At the end of the quarter, a grade will be given and it will be measured by the implementation of these rules and the success of your brand. Trust the witness Good branding starts with people aka your witness. People… Read More»

Daily Design Inspiration

Daily Design Inspiration AoiroStudio Jan 10, 2018 Part of the Daily Design Inspiration series that started it all on Abduzeedo. This is where you’ll find the most interesting things/finds/work curated by one of us to simply inspire your day. Furthermore, it’s an opportunity to feature work from more designers, photographers, and artists in general that we haven’t had the chance to write or feature about in the past. For this Daily we are selecting in photography, illustration, branding and more. Our goal is to diversify the types of work and in the future we can perhaps categorize them in different sections. For now we are going to stick to the simple format of images and links. I hope you enjoy and share with use via Twitter or our Tumblr. Until further notice, we’ll display the images and the titles added to them. Because of little issues we had in the past, the images are still linked to their authors, we just won’t mentioned who shared them like we used to. Daily Design Inspiration daily inspiration

Small Business Insurance: Starting from Scratch

Small business owners have a lot on their plate, and their priorities are often a frantic jumble of product, suppliers, staff, clients and marketing. Amidst the madness, they also need to wrap their head around the risks their business faces and what kind of insurance can help them mitigate those risks. Today we’ll look at some of the major considerations for first time business insurance clients, with the aim of giving the people who run small businesses a head start in understanding and purchasing their coverage. READING RISK The first step to understanding insurance is to assess the risks your business faces. You’ll want to divide them into two camps; the ones that are insurable and the ones that aren’t. Your business will face a bunch of risks that it can’t insure against, such as increased competition, declining margins, staff turnover, or the failure of a new product to make a splash in the market. These are risks that you’ll certainly want to try and avoid or mitigate, but you won’t be able to negate them with insurance. On the other hand, you can insure yourself against lawsuits with General Liability and Errors & Omissions insurance. And you can protect… Read More»

Pixel Art Series from your favorite TV Shows

Pixel Art Series from your favorite TV Shows AoiroStudio Jan 09, 2018 We are featuring the work from Gustavo Viselner who is an illustrator based in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is also a talented Pixel Artist with a brilliant idea to introduce this beautiful form of an accidental art from the 80s to today’s favourite TV Shows. Imagine reliving some of the best TV moments from the two decades in a Pixel form, enhance that 8-bit to the masses. You will recognize memorable TV shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and a lot more. Please enjoy! Pixel-Art is an art formed by lack, emerging back in the happy 8-bit days of the 80’s. It is a foundation stone of video gamer’s folklore. For me, pixel art is no longer just a graphic tool for games, but a form of art that can stand out without having a video game to support it. Having said that, I would love to take Saul Goodman to an exciting pixelated adventure. For now translating these fantasies into illustrated scenes is all I can do, and it’s delightful.
